Events: Friday Forum Panel

Every semester, the University YMCA hosts a series of free talks on a particular issue relevant to the community. For Spring 2015, that issue is Food Justice. This week’s Friday Forum will be a panel on Expanding the Local Food Movement, with guests Brad Uken, from the Champaign County Farm Bureau, Rick Weinzierl, a professor at UIUC, Natalie Kenny Marquez, coordinator for Urbana’s Market at the Square, and Dawn Blackman, of the Randolph Street Community Garden. As always, the talk will be held on Friday in the YMCA’s Latzer Hall at 12pm. If you are a YMCA student member, you may purchase a discounted lunch.

A full schedule of Friday forum talks can be seen below. You can read more about the Friday Forum here.
